Why don't you take the stick out of your ass and use it to draw then your cartoons wouldn't just look like shit they'd smell like it too. fucken slopy ass art and music really sucked it was like haveing a nail drilled in my head. Reason i have you one though was I needed to sleep and your cartoon helped me their
Hmmmayuoahia (I really hate the one-liners)
I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't a teensy bit dissappointed with the abrupt ending, but yeah.
The series definitely seems to be developing.
Onw thing I'd maybe suggest is that the blurring of the backgrounds is a bit 'sudden' if you know what I mean. There aren't any obejcts which are kind of half-blurred because they're half way into the background.
Apart from that, the music's pretty damn funky, the graphics pretty decent, and the story really seems to be developing.
I also like the combat.
My only real gripe is the cliffhanger.
Also, I accept that you propbably want to divert people to your site, but surely you could do some sort of decent preloader...
How many more episodes until we learn the truth about Arrogancy?
Yeah it sounds like you did the music
Ok first rule in animation their are no rules... everything goes No one style is better maybe with age and wisdom you will learn that. But now on to your flash try some actual animation and not motion tweening it all and if you must motion tween at least do it right look at toons like from my room for direction you. But first take that stick out of your butt and lighten up..
The reason I gave humor a "10" was because all the people at my job were sobbing uncontrollably from laughter at the horrible voice acting. It makes Eskimo Bob sound like Shakespeare!
Also you ned to learn how to pick up the pace! Watch Stick Slayer 6 to see what pace your next movie should be. Imagine 5 minutes of that and that's my next movie. Let's see... 1 hour work per shot, 243 shots, 5 minutes. THAT'S a good pace. 15 minutes work per shot, 13 shots, 5 minutes. That's a slowwwwwwwww movie.
243 shots in 5 minutes? That's horrible direction! That's even beyond MTV video editing! Hahah, that's one of the dumbest things I've ever read. I have 75 shots in Arrogancy 3, which is right on pace for any type of non-music video production.
Out of all the movies on Newgrounds, Stick Slayer would be the LAST thing that I'd want to emulate. Tighten up your art and anatomy and ease up on the gradients, PLEASE. You're breaking every rule of graphic design an aesthetics when you make EVERYTHING a gradient. Don't use music so recognizable as Gladiator - create your own if you can, or find something that everyone doesn't already know. And it would be a good idea to lighten up on the action. Take these suggestions to heart, and you'll get the respect of the more mature crowd.
Aaron, you are one of the best...
This movie shows the immense potential that Flash can have as a creative medium. Keep the good stuff coming! Show the stick animators what REAL Flash is all about!
